Check the Floppy Drive for discs also the CD-ROM/DVD-ROM and DVD/CD-RW for discs.

i checked, i have no disc in floppy drive or cd in drive?!? :$

OK that's the first obvious check out of the way, the next one would be to make sure that the CPU fan is working OK and that the CPU heatsink has not come off ( unlikely I know but you still need to check ).

Ok how much memory? If you have more than 1 ram stick try removing one and see if it clears if not swap them and see if that does it. You may have a bad ram stick

What antivirus do you use? Is it up to date?
Have you checked for the Blaster worm virus? You might also check for the rpc exploit (if you are not fully patched) (unlikely to be the problem but another possible)

i have 1 ram stick, 256mb
and i have latest virus check running

I would suggest (asuming no virus) you get hold of some more ram and try it. It is very cheap these days and if you got 256 at least you could double your ram if that is not the fault. ( I would heavily supect the ram)
